Captain Jacks was a great place for a quiet, beautiful weeks vacation in Placencia. Our cabana for 2 was one room. full kitchen for eating in with a great front porch. We had a waterfront cabana next to the channel so the deck chairs, hammock and deck was 15 feet away at most. We experienced all the waterway traffic and...

Captain Jak's hands down has the best bicycle beach cruisers for rent. The bikes are new, all have baskets, comfortable seat, locks and we also got lights to attach to the bikes for riding at night. Captain Jak is super friendly and will work with you as far as a 'deal". In his own words, "I'm not going to nickle...

We rented two cruiser bikes while in Placencia. The bikes were simple and in decent shape, though mine had a low front tire which made it a little difficult to pedal. We got a lock as well in case we stopped somewhere. They have golf carts as well, but we chose to get some exercise while exploring. Keep this place...

We get to Placencia fairly regularly and typically stay close to the beach but decided to mix it up this last trip and booked a cabana at Capt. Jacks. Short story - the cabanas are super cute, comfy, clean, have everything you would want and are in a very pretty manicured garden. This is a hidden gem right in the...

Stayed in one of the cabanas at Captain Jak's for two weeks over Christmas/New Year's. Cabana was well kitted out - bed was comfy, kitchen had all the utensils you need for eating in, decent fans for cooling the cabana, decent water pressure in the shower, okay wifi ( though varied over the course of the day). No TV, but...

Very accommodating !! The place was beautiful !!!! There was a mix up when we got there but they quickly rectified the problem and put us in a beautiful apartment on the second floor of a condo. Nice staff !!

Had an amazing stay here. It was clean and everything we needed. 15 sides to the dock and water. Peaceful, and relaxing. We wanted to fish off the dock, they brought down their personal fishing equipment for us to enjoy. I would go back tomorrow if I could. Best place I have ever stayed.

My wife and I like to "wing it". It is the off-season so we figured we may be able to find ample places to stay regardless of where we ended up. Well, we ended up at Captain Jak's in Placencia. The owners, Erin and Lucky, had a room for us and were super nice folks and have obviously made a...

This was my second trip to Captain Jak's; five years ago my husband and I got married there and we returned for a anniversary trip. Everything was just as wonderful as the first time. The cabanas have all the basic you will need, are clean and well maintained. Erin and Lucky are so kind and welcoming they truly help to...

We weren't exactly sure what to expect coming to Belize for the first time. Staying at Capt. Jak's was awesome! The cabanas were great, Lewis keeps the gardens immaculate and it's a short walk to the village. Of course, Oliver the parrot provides good entertainment with his whistles and talking. Lucky and Erin are great, honest and always ready to...

“The cabana closest to the boat deck was too hot on the front porch to sit out on in the afternoon. A more shady location would be more comfortable.”
